Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Griddle Q

does any one have one? do you use it often? what do you use one to cook? i already have a ci  griddle so should i get a griddle Q?

these were just some of the questions swimming through my head as i ran across one at sams this morning. so i pose those same questions to those of you that have one.. thanks ;)

happy eggin

    Nevermind i went ahead and ordered a round one found it here.http://www.firecraft.com/product/kettle-q-kq17r/grill-toppers-racks

     it was just under $105 plus shipping and a cleaning kit! and no i dont own the company nor anything like that i just found a round one the square ons at sams is made by the same company so since it was heavy and looks easier to clean up than the cast iron. i pulled the triger

  • I absolutely love mine. I have owned it for over a year. Easy to clean. Well worth it.
  • I have the Griddle Q model GC- 210. If I'm not mistaken, Sam's sells the Sizzle Q, which is a lighter grade steel than the Griddle Q's. The Kettle Q wasn't available when I bought mine. I bought mine for that small diner experience for burgers, hash browns, eggs, etc. I use mine on my Weber Summit 4 burner gasser, I remove the top grates and and place it right on the V-bars. I'm very happy with mine. Makes fantastic cheeseburgers. Based on my "Eggsperience", and Griddle Q experience on my gasser, I recommend you stabilize your egg at a lower temp, then tweak it up to desired. As I'm sure you know, the egg doesn't ramp down like a gasser if you overshoot.

    I had one for about a year. Used it twice and gave it away. Just not right for me.

  • Yeah. Definitely lower maintenance. Griddle Q is much higher grade than the sizzle. Good choice. Good luck with the cheese steaks and fajitas maybe?.

    @Mickey sorry i missed your comment!! i dont use my ci griddel often and i attribute it to lack of cleanning. i just hate the thing, but i figure the new one can go in the dish washer. and that is a big plus in my world

  • Aren't flat iron steaks the best great marbling and flavor. I do exactly the same season the meat cook whole to mid- rare and season and cook veggies separately. Best fajitas around no doubt about it. Bacon and eggs on the griddle will be nice also.

    i agree flat iron's are some of the best!! too bad everyone figured it out because they sure have gotten expensive over the last couple years!!
